About the event
Alex Hamburger: @dabaddestburger
Raised in the vibrant music scene of the DC area, flutist, vocalist and composer Alex Hamburger was immersed in the world of art from her earliest years. Her debut album “And She Spoke” (released in November 2021) brings together a collection of music inspired by the diverse and ever changing concept of the female voice, featuring original compositions heavily inspired by poetry written through the female voice and personalized arrangements of female-written compositions. She recently released her sophomore album, “What if?” Alex's journeys abroad have ignited the flame for her to continue captivating audiences worldwide with her internationally acclaimed performances. In January 2022, her quartet embarked on a South American tour, captivating audiences at the esteemed Jazz a la Calle Festival in Mercedes, Uruguay, and at Jazz B in São Paulo, Brazil.
